USMEF logo In this week’s audio report from the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF), four U.S. livestock and crop producers offer their observations after attending the sixth annual USMEF Latin American Product Showcase in Panama City, Panama.

About 120 buyers from 14 countries participated in the showcase, a premier event for U.S. companies that export beef, pork and lamb to Central and South America and the Caribbean, and 42 USMEF member companies had exhibits at the event.

The American producers in attendance at the showcase were Rod Gray, a rancher from Harrison, Nebraska, David Lowe, a soybean, corn and livestock producer from Dunkirk, Indiana, Doug Wolf, a pork producer from Lancaster, Wisconsin, and Randy Spronk, a pork, soybean and corn producer from Edgerton, Minnesota.
